It’s really not all that often that you see the Celtics as an underdog while playing at the TD Garden, but tonight is one of those rare exceptions. This is the first time that both of these teams are going to be on the court in the new calendar year, and you can bet the Boston is thrilled to have had the time off. The West Coast swing just before the close of 2012 was a disaster, as the team went 0-3 SU and ATS and was killed by the average score of 108-85 in those games. You can bet that Head Coach Doc Rivers has given this team some time away to try to get reenergized for the next portion of the season. We also really like the fact that G Avery Bradley is going to be back in the fold for this one for the first time this year after some offseason shoulder problems, though we are aware of the fact that G Rajon Rondo is a game-time decision. Memphis though, has been a tremendous team all year long, and the club really knows how to lock you down defensively. The telling stat in this game? The Grizz are 12-1 ATS in their last 13 meetings here in Beantown. That’s more than good enough for us to want to lay that short spread, especially if Rondo doesn’t end up taking the court.
Grizzlies @ Celtics Pick: Memphis Grizzlies -2.5
Grizzlies @ Celtics Prediction: Grizzlies 95 – Celtics 91
